Our Easter Garden Project & Wise Woman Link-up


You have heard me go on about different Easter Garden projects I've been finding everywhere online, well, we finally decided to take the plunge and start a new tradition for our family this year! Above you will find my 8 children all eagerly putting one together...


We used landscape rocks to make a path to the tomb--and do you see the rock inside? Well, that, my 9 year old daughter explained, is where they would have laid Jesus' body and NOT on the floor.


We put some ivy and plants and even some fake grass (I didn't think grass seeds would grow in time, yes, I'm impatient!) and never mind the sweet, hungry neighborhood boy in the background who stopped by for dinner. :)


Aren't they cute?


Here is a close up--can you see the three crosses? The children found sticks in the yard and created them with yarn. I will be using this as a centerpiece at our Easter celebration this weekend. If you'd like a tutorial to make one of these, click here.

Now for our linkup! If you have anything to especially share on Easter (how you celebrate, traditions, recipes, etc.) we'd love to hear from you.

A Wise Woman Builds Her Home is a place to be encouraged in your high and noble calling of role of wife and mother and daughter to the King and we want to encourage each and every single reader out there to build up strong Christian homes to the glory of God.

We would love for you to link up with us---share your posts on  building up your home, homemaking, character, hospitality, femininity, family, tea, etc. we would love to have you share it with us!
